An American in Paris (1951) Directed by Vincente Minnelli. Gene Kelly as Jerry Mulligan and Ann Codee as Therese (not pictured)
Jerry: Good morning, Therese.
Therese: How are you today, monsieur?
Jerry: Well, I could be better, Therese. I’m broke.
Jerry: It means I have no money. The trouble is, when I’m broke, I don’t eat. When I don’t eat, I get tired and depressed. When that happens, the only thing will help is wine and women.
Therese: That should be very simple, monsieur. You are in Paris, no?
Jerry: Yes, but even in Paris, that takes money, which is what I don’t have in the first place.
